Paralegal Certificate

Program Details

The Paralegal Certificate Program consists of 30 credits of coursework in a variety of areas of paralegal theory and practice. The American Bar Association defines a paralegal as "a person qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible."

This certificate program will prepare you to work as a paralegal, legal assistant, and office support staff member in law firms, government agencies, private business or non-profit organizations.


Most students complete the Paralegal Certificate Program within two years. You are free to work on your certificate on a part time basis. Many of the classes are offered in the evening to allow you flexibility in taking courses while working.
